Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I ESA)
It takes information to identify whether a property is a brownfields. Common sense tells us every property with commercial history does not require environmental cleanup. To determine which ones could have environmental issues, it is impractical to go to every potential brownfields and collect samples for laboratory chemical testing. Even if money were no object, you can never test for everything, everywhere on any property. Where do you begin? For eligible and approved sites, the UG Brownfields Program can provide a Phase I environmental assessment “at no cost” to the project or community in order to identify potential environmental concerns.
